Doorslaande Tongen Workshops - Netherlands

Netherlands poster
Following the cancellation of 2020 workshops due to Covid-19, a weekend of Doorslaande Tongen Workshops will be held from 19th to 21st November 2021 at the Beukenhof in PJ Biezenmortel, Netherlands, organised by Stichting Volksmuziek Nederland.

The workshops will include the following:

• Make It Beautiful with Frans Tromp for medium to advanced CF. If you can play a melody, that's not the end, but it's just beginning. Then it's time to put a personal note on it.

• Functional decorating in rhythmic music with Kok de Koning - Applying 2-row CF and 3-rower GCF
He will work on some not too difficult instrumental pieces with different decorations that are functional in rhythmic music. Think of musical styles such as polka, cumbia and tarantella.

• Decorate with the bellows with Wim Dictus for medium to advanced GC. It is sometimes difficult enough to (just) put down one melody beautifully or to come up with a nice accompaniment in the basses. Should we start varying and decorating? Is that any use? Sometimes it is, often it isn't.

• Decorating on accordion bellows and other instruments with Mayke van den Broek for beginners and average players. Mayke enjoys playing music from different countries and usually the decoration of the melody or rhythm comes naturally, sometimes because the atmosphere of the music demands it or because it fits the tradition of music.

• What makes a tune "Irish"? with Mariëtte Kuipers-van
Kooten for 2-rower G/C, D/G, A/D, B/C, C#/D or in consultation. This course will cover the learning of different Irish melodies, both by ear, or as the Irish say “Playing by heart”, and of sheet music. And what makes an Irish melody Irish? What is the essence of a tune? We mainly focus on learning different decorations in the tunes, such as rolls, triplets and swing.

A World of Accordions Museum (AWAM) curator Helmi Harrington, Ph. D., presented a seminar and course teaching Antique Accordion Restoration at the renowned A World of Accordions Museum in Superior, Wisconsin.

The week long course, one of several in the series, focused on reeds with topics and practical work assignments including identifying dislodged reeds (a common occurrence in antique instruments), removing, cleaning and treating all the reeds, dealing with rust and age related issues, sequencing according to keyboard configuration, cleaning and prepping the reed blocks, reed leather work and finally waxing the reeds back into place. In this seminar, each topic’s complexities paid particular focus to how it applied to antique instruments.

See pictures of the work at: 2021Course

Participants included accordionist and CIA Ambassador and curator of the Accordion Gems Exhibition at the Dargaville Museum in New Zealand Kevin Friedrich and local Symphony Conductor, musician and accordionist Tracey Gibbens. Additional assistance was provided by Museum volunteer Robin Floyd.

During the timeframe of the weeklong course, several of the AWAM Board of Directors met with the Mayor of Superior, Jim Paine. The Mayor is an enthusiastic supporter of his community and has been proactive in recognizing the importance and uniqueness of A World of Accordions Museum in Superior. The Mayor has invited A World of Accordions Museum to display several instruments at the City Hall offices to create awareness of the 2,000 instruments housed in the adjacent World of Accordions Museum. The Mayor was excited to hear that the Museum was the recent recipient of a substantial donation of instruments (350) from a private Washington DC and Paris based collector Alain Papineau. A preliminary display of instruments from these holdings is on display in the Special Exhibits area at the Museum.

Future classes in the series pertaining to antique accordions will include Tuning, Bellows Work, Bass Mechanics and general aesthetics and restoration. For more information please visit www.worldofaccordions.org

Kevin Friedrich Releases 'Reflections' CD - USA

Reflections CD cover by Kevin Friedrich
Kevin FriedrichNew York based accordionist Kevin Friedrich has recently released a CD of his live performances titled ‘Reflections’, catalog friedrich02. Kevin says “Over the course of my accordion career I have had the joy of performing an array of music spanning transcriptions, showcasing the genius of the great Masters such as Johann Sebastian Bach through to creative original works for the accordion.

Many of these performances were in conjunction with my days of competing in International competitions such as the Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA) Coupe Mondiale (1979, 1980 and 1981) and Klingenthal (1986) and during my Conservatory studies in both Kansas City (USA) and Paris (France).”

Kevin goes on to say “One of the few regrets I have in life, is that I didn’t professionally record all this magnificent repertoire at the time I was performing it. In those days it was a rapid succession of exams and competitions often enticing new works. In the excitement and challenge of learning, the older repertoire was often unceremoniously discarded, making way for the new.

Fortunately not all was completely lost and there were occasions that my live performances were recorded. Often these were made on cassette tapes, as was common in the 1970s and 1980s. While not ideal in this age of digital recording, in the interest of preserving recordings for prosperity’s sake, I feel blessed to have them.”

At the request of the New Zealand Accordion Association (NZAA) Kevin has now compiled a series of his performances which will serve as a historical record of some of his work. An exponent of both the piano and button keyboards, some of the pieces are performed on his Pigini Super Sirius Bayan, (Instrument No. 85 - C System) and some on his Titano Emperor JW5 Piano Accordion (quint free bass system).

The tracks include: Toccata and Fugue in D minor (BWV 565) by J. S. Bach; A Farewell to St. Petersburg, No. 10, The Lark by Mikhail Glinka, arr. M. Balakirev; Reflections by Karen Fremar (I. The Prairie, II. The Plaza, III. The Festival); Four Pieces in Old Style, (III. Aria) by Georgiy Shenderev; Prelude and Fugue “The Great” in A minor (BWV 543) by J. S. Bach; Sonata by Alexander Timoshenko (II. Rondo, III. Lento Doloroso, IV. Rondo Finale); Prelude and Fugue No. XV in G Major (WTC I - BWV 860) by J. S. Bach; Concert Suite for Accordion by Albin Repnikov (I. Recitative and Toccata) and Sonata No. 2 (III. Vivacissimo Con Spirito) by Vladislav Zolotaryov.
